I'd like to know too - tried it today but didn't work so well with the hard edges.

Yep there are lots of good tutorials out there. But to say it briefly in here. You just cut away the parts of the photo you dont want by using the selection tool with heaps of feathering. Then you play with the photo layer using blend modes and changing the opacity using the slider till you get the desired results.

Yep.. thats pretty much it

Very brief i know. But the tuts are awesome. Good luck

What is feathering and how do you do it? Sometimes, I don't want to cut away the edges of a photo.

Feathering in photoshop is a softening of the edges when you cut. It makes them more opaque. I think Microsoft has an edge softener too?

There are tuts at DigiScrapping Tutorials, too. Do a keyword search for MONTAGE layout.

I would love to blend also, but I have PSP and not sure if you can do it with that program.
